Naran Bataar's Jaster Mereel W.I.P
« on: Jun 10, 2017, 06:42 PM »
Hello all,

So I have been toying with the idea of doing a "canon" (well in this case legends) build for ages now. I thought about doing a Deathwatch Grunt, Clan Wren Grunt and even one of the Mandalores. But I never really connected with any of those builds. In my wanderings in search of a character build that I might want to undertake. I came across the True Mandalorians again and my first thought was that I could go that route as the True Mandalorian CRL/BRLs strike a nice middle ground between canon and custom, still offering the challenge that I was looking forward yet without being uttering locked in.

However when the idea of doing a Jaster Mereel build instead was put forward and after doing some brushing up on the character I decided that I could really get behind this character and so I have set to work.

This will be an undertaking for me, but I think being that this will be the sixth kit I will have build, (three for myself and two for my wife) that it is time to push things to a new level.

And now for the checklist!

Helmet:
Helmet- Waiting for ear caps and rangefinder to arrive

Armor:
Chest- Templated
Ab- Templated
Collar- Templated
Gauntlets- Underway
Cod- Templated
Thigh- Templated
Knee- Templated
Shin- Templated

Weapons:
Sidearms-Ordered
Rifle-TBA

Soft Goods-
Flight suit-Ordered
Armor Vest- Done
Gloves-Ordered
Boots- Done
Under Belt-Done
Overbelt-Done
Pouches-Done
Left Holster-Done
Right Holster-Underway

Hopefully by the end of the weekend I will have some fun process pictures, to share with folks as I plan on getting the plates made this evening.

Mi'ix

I toyed with this last year as well. Glad to see someone step up for this build.

It's spelled "Canon", not "Cannon".

Build update...

All major work is done on the bucket, still need to go back in and clean things up close up the gaps and what not. That will be a project for this evening. My plan is to get it to the ready to paint stage by Tuesday

Same goes for the gauntlets, flamethrowers have been built and attached as have the top "scopes".

Also the belt is all done, going to start work on the plates now.

And now for Pictures!









Also for anyone that might one day undertake this build recessing the ear caps is a tricky undertaking  :laugh:

Painting is now underway, still have a bit to go painting wise. Mainly detail work adding sigils and what not.

But the base metal and weather is done.

All painting is done, just need to add the knee darts, put in the visor and then it is off to plate attachment!
